[Re-posted as there's just one week left to get your responses in...!]
Every year we’re pleased to help publicise the BI Survey, an annual independent survey of BI tools customers organized by BARC. What’s good about the BI Survey is that it helps you understand what others using your favourite BI tool think of it, and where it’s useful and not so useful, and it’s also a good way to gauge how your BI tools are rated relative to the competition. There’s also sections on BI implementation approaches, tool selection and so forth, so it’s a good all-round survey of the BI tools marketplace (note that we have no financial or commercial interest or links to BARC, we just think they’re “good guys”).
Anyway, here’s the invite. Make sure you take part, so that there’s a good sample size for Oracle BI, EPM and OLAP tools in the survey:
“We would appreciate your participation in ‘The BI Survey 11: The Customer Verdict’, the world’s largest survey of business intelligence (BI) and performance management (PM) users.
Click the link below to take part:
As a participant, you will:
- Receive a summary of the results from the full survey
- Be entered into a draw to win one of ten $50 Amazon vouchers
- Ensure that your experiences are included in the final analyses
BARC’s annual survey gathers input from a large number of organizations to better understand their buying decisions, their implementation cycles and the benefits they achieve from using BI software. The BI Survey 11 is strictly vendor-independent: BARC does not accept vendor sponsorship of the Survey, and the results are analyzed and published without any vendor involvement.
You will be able to answer questions on your usage of a BI product from any vendor. Your answers will be used anonymously, and your personal details will never be passed on to vendors or other third parties. Business and technical users, as well as vendors and consultants, are all welcome to participate.
The BI Survey 11 should take about 25 minutes to complete. For further information, please contact Silke Hopf at BARC (email@example.com).”
